Absolute Givenchy – A Young and Fresh Fragrance

Fragrance Review

Arrived on the market at the beginning of 2007, Absolute is a travel retail exclusive fragrance, belonging to the olfactory group. The official description mentions the phrase: ”young and fresh, both elegant and sparkling, the woman is an absolute admirer of the brand… She is ‘Absolute ’ ”, and from that it is obvious that this scent is geared at a more young audience, compared to the usual pool of feminine clientele.

The flacon that holds Absolute Givenchy is quite similar to 2006’s Lovely Prism, with a rectangular shaped flask topped by a stopper with pyramidal form. The color for the liquid is yellow, while the cap comes in matching pink shade.

From the multitude of launches in a year, Absolute Givenchy comes as a well-behaved type of scent, ideal for a young woman. I managed to encounter this perfume 4 years ago, while I was travelling and I was intrigued by its dominant aroma of apple, heightened by a concoction in which passion fruit was also available. The opening in Absolute Givenchy is quite interesting, too bad it is followed by a mid development in which everything becomes a little dull, and in the end, the musky aroma is saving the situation. The listed notes for Absolute Givenchy includes: apple, passion fruit, sweet pea, musk and woodsy accords. The scent exhibits a moderate lasting power and a minimal sillage.

Compared to other perfumes from the French house, I’ll say that Absolute Givenchy is interesting purely by its association with a famous brand, less due to some innovative composition in perfumery.
